Sorry man, but I just didn't have time to run out there today and pick it up but you can bet your arse I'll be out there bright and early Monday morning.  ;)

Not being able to go out today and get it, I almost wished he hadn't called till Monday, because now, I'll be thinking about it all weekend.  :bash:

Shawn put a Trigger Tech in this build and it'll be my first experience with one of those.  I have a bunch of Jewell's and a few Timney Calvin Elites so I'm curious to see how I like these Trigger Techs.

I shot 70's in a rem 7 .243 for a bit and they shot awesome! They made a real mess out of coyotes. My normal load was 58gr vmax but I'd switch to the 70's come winter when I was snow shoeing or skiing for cats. You gonna run em hard?

I'm not sure RL16 will be the best powder to use if I'm trying to wring the maximum velocity out of this cartridge with the 70gr BT's.  I think RL17 would be a much better choice for that, but RL17 is kind of a quirky powder and is far from temperature insensitive so I'm not sure the extra 150fps it may give will/would be worth it. 

With RL16 being somewhat bulky, I'm not sure how much above 44gr I'll be able to get in the case, but I do have a longazz drop tube, so I'll probably try and see how much more I can stuff in there.  If it doesn't work out, I'll always have the test load to default back to that I know shoots well.

Well nice thing about a 70gr pill is even at mild speeds it's still going really fast :chuckle:

Many, or any, 6mm Creedmoor shooters here, and if so any of you by chance shooting 70-80 grainers or is everyone shooting the 105-108's ???
Are you hunting with your 6mm Creedmoor? Or target shooting?
For hunting, those 70-80gr bullets are nasty on coyotes.

Sorry it took so long to get around to this but with the holidays, well you know.  Also, my picture taking skills are limited at best so it's not the guns fault.

It'll just be another coyote getter.

Sadly, I have not.  These past few weeks have been nothing but a blur.  Hopefully in the next few I'll have time to send some downrange.

I shoot the Nosler ďSecondsĒ in the 105gr RDF. I get them dirt cheap and they shoot well.  They flat crush Antelope. Huge BC.
